Campbell takes you through his heavy drinking days in the King Canute pub of his youth, his start in comic books, the early graphic novel crowd, and his various encounters of love and relationships. I particularly enjoyed The King Canute stories of his childhood best friend Danny Grey, and the early comic scenes on how Campbell stood out in a budding world of comic authors and readership.
He is so very funny with a true and honest look at history and art. You get his perspective into many different events and learn to love and admire his work ethic and adventures while giving us the gritty honest parts of his own failures. Other comic book greats make their way into here including Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, Will Eisner, Bill Sienkiewicz.
ALEC is a must read comic book. As a huge fan of his illustration from Alan Moore's From Hell, I found this book enlightening and a delight!
I can say it's great to have so much of his material in one place, and even at the hardcover price it is cheaper than buying all of his books separately.
I can also say that I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the book itself. For example, it is not cloth bound or fancy, but instead has a very simple, no frills binding. It is simple, but solid, and stands out well among the other books on my shelf.
I was also expecting a book this thick to have thin pages, slightly better than newsprint. Instead, the pages are luxuriantly thick, allowing Campbell's simple artwork to really stand out.
If the folks at Top Shelf happen to read this review, please, please put something like this together for Glenn Dakin's comics as well.
